Plot: Jack Reagan is an officer of the law, but that doesn't mean he has to play by the rules. With his old school attitude and unsubtle ways, he is constant thorn in the side of internal affairs - especially Officer Lewis. It doesn't help he's having an affair with his wife, Nancy. But when his ways end up in massive gun battle, and a lot of death, he's stripped of his title and briefly detained. But his young protege and a fellow senior officer aren't ready to let Reagan go, and once free, they plan a bloody retaliation. -- Chris Kavan
